Bayern oust Juventus in a dramatic comeback….

Thiago wheels away in celebration after scoring Bayern's third goal

Bayern Munich came back from the brink of a shock Champions League exit to beat Juventus 4-2 in extra-time, earning a 6-4 aggregate win to claim a place in the quarter-finals. Paul Pogba took advantage of some shambolic defending from the Germans to put Juve in front after just six minutes and Juan Cuadrado doubled the lead with less than half an hour gone. But just as Bayern looked like they were slipping out they came back to life and after Robert Lewandowski pulled one back, Thomas Muller levelled three minutes from the end. That forced an extra half hour and two goals in as many minutes from substitutes Thiago and Kingsley Coman completed a stirring comeback as the hosts claimed an unlikely win.
